Goodnight, moon 

Well, the guy with the submachine gun they had outside The Mighty Corrente Building here in Philly seems to have been told to stand down; probably because Bush won't help with the overtime....

Not that I really mind the submachine guns, of course; if it's good enough for Paris and London...

What I do mind—what really makes me crazy—is the combination of gaslighting and the feckless, reckless indifference to real threats that Bush exhibits on a daily basis.

Exhibit A being Iraq, exhibit B being not protecting the ports, and Exhibit Z being the latest fiasco: outing the AQ mole as part of the gaslighting.

UPDATE No! It gets better. Here's the real Exhibit Z: Bush nominates Florida House Republican Porter Goss to be CIA head, for no apparent reason other than to help pick up Florida twelve weeks from now, and it turns out that Goss thinks he's not up to the job. In fact, Goss said "I couldn't get a job with CIA today. I am not qualified", on tape, to Michael Moore. (Matt Gunn, via Atrios).


Life's little ironies, eh?
